This was the first poem I wrote for Andrew my husband when we were young and inl ove at the very same school that Bailey is in now!
My heart missed a beat at every galnce
I didn't want to blink incase I missed my chance
I imagined his sofe skin against mine
one wish, one dream I'm running out of time
I want to hold his hand tight
and love him with all my heart felt might
my eyelashes fluttered around his
like two lovebirds in a confused tis
I walked forward, glanced back
i'm so confused my heart under attack
I need him, want his love
set it free like a captured dove
yes he's the one for me
I've got the lock he must have the key
and through the clearing mist
its not hard to see
he's got the love thats meant for me.
I clearly remember writing this and nervously giving this to Andrew and then rushing away, I remember watching him reading it form afar and fondly listen as he recalls this reduced him to tears, Just 15 and me 16 and already we'd found someone whom we'd grow up with .
